USS New Hampshire Christened

For the first time since the beginning of the 20th a US Navy vessel bears the name USS New Hampshire.

The Virginia-class nuclear submarine was christened at the General Dynamics Electric Boat shipyard in Groton, Connecticut on Saturday. The new submarine is the fifth in the new fast attack class and will be commissioned at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire this October.
